    These are lecture of the Advanced Atomic Physics course at Heidelberg University, as tought in the wintersemester 2018/2019. It is intended for master students, which have a basic understanding of quantum mechanics and electromagnetism. In total, we will study multiple topics of modern atomic, molecular and optical physics over a total of roughly 25 lectures, where each lectures is approximately 90 minutes. The topics of the lectures will be discussed in more details in the associated tutorials.

    • 1: Some Cooking Recipes for Quantum Mechanics
      In this first lecture we will review the foundations of quantum mechanics at the level of a cooking recipe. This will enable us to use them later for the discussion of the atomic structure and interaction between atoms and light.
